A bunch of ASUS stuff is removed, so nothing is broken really, but you might be missing things if you use some of them.

Notes & Info
I don't want to modify the SysUI on this, due to pretty frequent updates from ASUS.
To change home screen Grid size:
Long Press on a blank space > Preferences > Home Screen > Grid Size
To remove "Do not disturb" notification:
Go to 'Settings' > 'Do not disturb' > (Very Bottom) 'Notification' > Off
To remove "Battery Ready" notification:
Go to 'Settings' > 'Battery' > Menu > 'Set Battery charging ready reminder' > Never (or whatever percent you want)
*Data removal flashable zip in second post. This can be used if you want to come from stock to this ROM. Flash full ROM first, then flash data removal. This will remove the updated Asus apps from the stock build, but will not wipe the rest of your data partition.
*This will not delete data or user installed apps. This will wipe /system so as to remove all the bloat, even if coming from stock doing an upgrade.
